A program to build 1024 x 1024 21 micron MPP-CCDs for the NASA/ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft is in progress. A test and evaluation facility has been constructed to evaluate and select the CCDs for flight. Parametric studies of voltage rails timing pattern and horizontal and parallel clock timing are performed. Various CCD performance parameters are plotted including CTE photon transfer curve dark current output node gain and noise. We have found that the MPP CCD requires a different sequence of parallel phase timing when running in the fully inverted mode from the pattern required for the non-inverted mode or the non-MPP device. Also the backside MPP-CCD is extremely sensitive to the length of time for the parallel transfer. 1.
